Question Does he have HD?

So I was looking at the symptoms of HD in dogs. I noticed that "bunny hopping" was one of them. So that was no big deal until i realized that Rosco "bunny hops" when he runs. He doesn't look like he's in pain but he whines a lot. I'm guessing it's either because we brought him home just 3 days ago or because he is teething (he's 3 1/2 months old). But he walks funny too. He's really clumsy when he's walking around. Is this because his bones are still developing? And when I lightly push down on his rear he sits down easily. I heard that was also a symptom of HD? Both his parents are ASL. I know they have a different way of running and walking. So is this normal for him? Should i b e concerned?
BTW he has a guarantee on his hips and elbows.
